I got better $hit to worry about than to go take pics. I have no big mirrors in my apt so I'm waiting till I go to the gym. I'm traveling most of next week, I have not packed yet. Do I worry about taking a topless pic for OT or about going on in my life. Jeez

Do you have a worm up your ass? What's up with the douche attitude? Snap out of it bro.

I don't live to lift, I lift 3-4 times a week and I'm happy where I'm. Of course improvement is always welcome, thanks to some members on here that have helped me a lot.

Either contribute something useful or get the fvck out. I think fast food and sugar got to your brain.

And no, I like the leanness, looks, and speed of my body better, even tough you're like 40lbs heavier. Not into bulky look.

Get your head out of your ass, put some real work in, get some real results and maybe you'll get an ounce or 2 of respect around here.

You're the one that talked about how amazing you are, how much better you got in a matter of 2 weeks and how you're so much better than everyone else and look so much better. Pretty strong claims to follow with a 5 week old pic

I was asked, so I delivered, in detail where I'm at, my weak points, my improvements and what I'm doing.

Careful on that forward lean on the last couple. Overall that was still quality work, a quality set and pretty quality form.

I move fast on purpose. My goal is to get that weight back up not really take advantage of the eccentric portion. Although I do mix in some of this stuff. You are right about the lean though. I am def conscious of that. Thanks for the tips


z00, I would be willing to write you a program if you wanted. But don't be like that other dude on here who I wont name who wanted a program and didn't do it or ever communicate with me about it.

Same. For me it's always about moving heavy weight as fast as possible and being athletic. I've probably lost out on some hypertrophy gains over the years by this. But then again, if I cared about hypertrophy I'd probably do more than 3-5rep sets.

Thanks Mike! To be honest I have a hectic schedule this month and my shoulder is injured. I would hate to have you write me a program and not follow it, let me settle down and I'll be happy to work with you on a program.

Why so light on the DLs? Does your shoulder hurt during them?

If your shoulder is still bothering you. Then your primary focus should be rehab not presses and raises... Things such as: wall slides, YTWL exercises, band pulls, shoulder dislocates, etc...

It's fine with lighter weight. Injury is where Rear delt & lats connect, so I cannot do heavy DLs yet. I still cannot do a single pullup yet.

I'll do more rehab exercises like you suggested at home. Thanks!

z00 can I tell you something?

Please just go do Starting Strength, Justin Lasceks S&C Program or something like it. You will make the best progress. Almost 3 years later I am still riding out linear progression.

My program is "very" similar to Lascek's program below. I'm still injured and cannot do all exercises so I substitute my own. I started squatting 3x a week, DL 1x, and I can see the difference. Thanks!

See my last workout above and compare to below.


Monday
Squat Weight lifted x 5 reps x 3 sets, sets across
Press 5x3, sets across
Chins/Pull-ups 3 sets of as many reps as possible

Tuesday
Power Clean 3 reps x 5 sets, sets across
Dips 3 sets of as many reps as possible
Conditioning

Wednesday
Off or Skill Day

Thursday
Squat 5x3, sets across
Bench Press 5x3, sets across
Dips 3 sets of as many reps as possible

Friday
Deadlift 5 reps x 1 work set
Pull-ups/Chins 3 sets of as many reps as possible (can be moved to Saturday)
Conditioning

Saturday
Optional conditioning

but it's not. In that case you can call every program similar.

A program is only a program if you're doing that.

z00 the issue is you always have some type of excuse as to why you can't keep to your routine, if you are injured that's one thing and is legitimate, but you always seem to have issues with work or partying or what not. Stick to the program and you will see progress, I'm not going back and reading through this thread but it seems as if your numbers haven't moved (I'm talking DLs and squats).

And if you are doing power cleans get a video up, it is a very technical lift that 95% of the people in my gym do wrong, am I good at them no, but I know how they are supposed to be done, yes.

I see, I look more at the structure of a program. I don't get too hung up in exercise details as long as I'm doing compound lifts.

True, I tend to have something going on. But that's life. You will like my FS form. Will post a video soon.
I have not attempted max reps in DLs or squats in few months now. My numbers have not changed much (5-10% increase) but my musculature has changed.

I'm not doing cleans any time soon. I need a coach to show me correct form. Don't wanna risk injury again.

That's it dude. Just get something in place. Treat it like a job. You know you have something to do. Just do it.

Look at me. Last year at this time I never squatted more than 245lbs. I maxed at 265 about 7 months ago, then 2 months later I hit 280. Last saturday I hit 315 and I can't tell you how happy I was to do that. To me that is a huge deal. I think about the clueless jerk I was when I weighed 163lbs and couldn't do 165 without feeling like I would die.

I was like you. I knew deep down that squatting is what I needed to do to get stronger. But I sucked at it and it was hard. I dicked around with medium volume squats, front squats, cleans. My Squat didn't move. In 2 months I put 35lbs on it all because I was sticking to a program. Every time I squatted I did 2.5lbs more and tried to get as many reps as possible on my 3rd set. I dropped to 205 and all I could do was 11 reps. At 250 I got 10. That's awesome progress all because I stuck with a program.
